The Roussos solo stuff that Vangelis had a hand in is a bit heavy on the cheese for me. I would search for albums he produced for other folks in the 70s, especially Italian pop names like Patty Pravo, Riccardo (sp?) Cocciante and Claudio Baglioni. These are all big on the choirs and cavernous "Heaven & Hell" style synth armies. Then there's the lovely, more subdued record he did with Greek teen singer Mariangela. That one has more of an "Opera Sauvage" sound pallette going and is pretty special. All fave records of mine. Avoid most things he produced for others in the 80s I say bar a couple of things like the collabs with Irene Pappas and "Short Stories" with Jon Anderson.

I just cleaned up (hiss removal, added a little dynamics "oomph") two sort of hard to find concerts from 1978 & 1979 - Paris and London repsectively. Beautiful live improvs with piano, synths, percussion and other instruments. Incredible live versions of "Spiral" and others. Can up this week if anyone wants.

Here's an idea of the London one, though I cleaned it up a bit. Will dig for the concerts this weekend.
